Short Bio

Dr. Christine Drew is an assistant professor in special education and the EAGLES Program Faculty Research Advisor. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst – Doctoral (BCBA-D). Dr. Drew taught special education in middle school in Texas for five years before moving to Oregon for her doctoral program. 


Dr. Drew is primarily a single-case researcher and has also conducted qualitative and quantitative research. Her research interests include assessing and treating challenging behavior in adolescents with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), training natural change agents like parents and teachers to implement behavioral interventions, and sexuality and relationship education for individuals with IDD. 


When not teaching or conducting research, Dr. Drew works with her partner in the backyard planting fruiting trees, bushes, and vines. She also stays busy buying houseplants (for which she does not yet have pots or shelving). She enjoys playing with her newly-adopted dogs Mollie and Mick, and watching very useless television shows.
